Surgeons use procedure to offer patients improved vision quickly with few side effects
Paris is the scheduled venue for the 37th meeting of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS).
A common symptom, dry eye can have an adverse impact on visual recovery and outcomes
Providing findings from a retrospective study, Li Lim, MD, noted that eyes with high myopia benefit from CXL add-on to LASIK, resulting in safety, efficacy, and predictability with refractive outcomes that are more stable than those achieved with LASIK alone.
Follow-up at 7 years shows procedure safe, effective, provides stable correction
Laser technology has potential to modify IOL refractive index without change to lens shape
Comparable levels of near, distance visual acuity; high patient satisfaction marks observed
Combining LASIK, corneal inlays hits refractive ‘sweet spot’ for many patients
